Announcing IsilonSD Edge

Watch out, world: IsilonSD Edge is here! IsilonSD Edge is the software-defined OneFS storage solution you’ve been waiting for. IsilonSD Edge is deployed as a virtual instance of OneFS on a VMware ESXi host running on industry-standard hardware. It runs Isilon OneFS 8.0, so you get the same core functionality as the latest OneFS release while enabling your remote sites to have their own on-site storage solutions. That means that you can extend your data lake from your core data center to your edge locations, including remote and branch offices.  Bonus:  you can download and use a production-ready version of IsilonSD Edge for free! The free license allows you to deploy as many clusters as you’d like for as long as you’d like. You also get access to resources available on the EMC Community Network (ECN) Isilon community.

Go get it!
